Lyrics

MAKING IT LEGAL

They can act all regal
Long into the night,
But making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
No, making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
Black is still black,
And white is still white.
Black is still black,
And white is still white.

The haves make up the rules
For all of the have nots.
I'm sure they think it's cool
That they never get caught.

Something's wrong in America
When all our elderly
Have to miss meals, pick a
Pill to skip to save some money.

Watch a dozen children
Playing in the street --
It's sad that three or four of them
Don't get enough to eat.

They can act all regal
Long into the night,
But making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
No, making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
Black is still black,
And white is still white.
Black is still black,
And white is still white.

Cigarettes are cancer sticks,
Symbols of man's greed.
The sleight of hand of politics
Has made them legal weed.

War is corporate business --
Invest your son or daughter.
There's no end to man's wickedness
When there's profit in the slaughter.

Worshiping is out of fashion;
Praying is passé.
It's easier to cash in
When God's not in the way.

They can act all regal
Long into the night,
But making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
No, making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
Black is still black,
And white is still white.
Black is still black,
And white is still white.

Making it legal
Doesn't make it right.
